The term "disk space" is oftentimes called "disk quota" or "data storage", still all these words refer to the exact same thing - the volume of info that you are able to upload to a shared hosting account. The overall size of what you have is calculated by accumulating the storage space taken by all the content within your account, the most apparent being the types of files that you upload. Two more things are commonly disregarded by the majority of users, though - e-mail messages as well as databases. Sizeable attachments and databases of huge script-driven internet sites will often use a lot of disk space too. To employ a more familiar analogy, the hdd space of your home computer is consumed not only by files that you download, but also by documents you write as well as programs you add. In the same way, many things are counted towards the disk space your data takes on a web site hosting server, not only the uploads.

Disk Space in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans were made with the notion that deficiency of hard disk space should not be something that will limit the development of your websites. That is why we have used a technique which is not the same as the one that most website hosting suppliers take - instead of just making all the accounts on a single server and eventually not having enough storage space, we employ a cloud hosting platform in which the storage space is taken care of by an entire collection of servers. That's why, we can always connect more machines in case they are needed and more hard drives, to be able to provide more disk space for all of the files of our clients. Different clusters take care of your email messages as well as the databases, as a result not only will you be able to develop your web sites without having to worry about space, but also all the servers will perform better and faster as each service has its own space for storage and a single server doesn't handle various kinds of files.
